AHRC Anniversary Cultural Engagement Fund 2015


The AHRC has launched a second round of its Cultural Engagement Fund, as part of the activities to mark the AHRC 10th Anniversary.

The scheme allows institutions which hold an AHRC Block Grant Partnership PhD award to fund one or more 3-month collaborative projects to support the engagement of their arts and humanities research with the wider cultural and civic context in which they operate. The scheme particularly seeks to fund recently completed doctoral graduates, and so aims to support the broader career development of these graduates, particularly in relation to work with non-academic partners to support the wider impact of arts and humanities research.

For further information regarding the scheme, including a list of the institutions taking part, can be found on the Cultural Engagement Fund page.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funds world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects: ancient history, modern dance, archaeology, digital content, philosophy, English literature, design, the creative and performing arts, and much more. This financial year the AHRC will spend approximately £98m to fund research and postgraduate training in collaboration with a number of partners. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
